King scoops top award

Chelmsford City Manager Jeff King had an extra reason to crack open the champagne over the New Year period after being named Blue Square South Manager of the Month for December, having led the Clarets to maximum points from their three league matches during that spell.

Football: Chelmsford City Manager Jeff King had an extra reason to crack open the champagne over the New Year period after being named Blue Square South Manager of the Month for December, having led the Clarets to maximum points from their three league matches during that spell.

The Clarets maintained their lead at the top of the table last month by winning tough away clashes at Welling United as well as Hayes & Yeading United, additionally beating local rivals Thurrock at Melbourne Stadium.

King's side have reached the half-way point of the season looking for a second successive title after last season's Ryman League Premier Division success.

Naturally, the curse of the dreaded Manager of the Month Award struck for King at Newport County at the weekend, continuing the tradition that the winner always suffers immediate defeat as a direct consequence. City lost 1-3
